Guidelines for the English Program in the Middle School and in the Junior High School. Curriculum Bulletin No. 57.
New Orleans Public Schools, LA. Div. of Instruction.
This curriculum guide discusses an English program for the middle school and the junior high school. The guide is based on the premise that the study of English involves helping the student to clarify, order, interpret, and communicate his experiences through the skillful use of language. This is achieved by allowing the student to exercise oral and written skills through performance-oriented methods, through contact with literature, through small and large group discussions, and in various communications media. The guide is divided into three sections: oral language experiences, written language experiences, and vicarious language experiences. Each section includes an overview, a description of behavioral goals and non-behavioral goals, and suggested techniques for implementing these goals. An appendix includes a selected bibliography of adolescent literature. (DI)
